Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine
One of the most well-known shrines among the people of Kyoto, this shrine
is nicknamed "Oinari-san." Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine is the main shrine of
all the Inari Shrines in Japan, and one of the oldest Shinto shrines in Kyoto.
Boasting the most visitors of all Shinto Shrines in Japan, it is particularly
crowded during the New Year, as well as on the first day of each month and "uma
no hi" (day
of the horse under the Japanese old calendar). The deity of this shrine is famous
as the god of prosperity in business. Originally called "Inenari," he is also
the god of the grain harvest, worshipped not only by people operating businesses
but by people engaged in agriculture as well.
